Frittata in a Jar

This is such a fun breakfast to make and perfect for sharing! I opened the drawer in my refrigerator and took out all of the vegetables to make this perfect Paleo breakfast in a jar!

Save those left over roasted vegetables for your breakfast.  I just love a frittata with roasted sweet potatoes, kale and onions!  Yum!

Cindy's Tip:  If you are making these to enjoy during the week let them cool completely then seal and refrigerate.  You can warm in the microwave.

 

Ingredients

  • Coconut oil
  • 1/2 pound breakfast sausage or other meat
  • 1 cup mushrooms, diced
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cups baby spinach, chopped
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

     

  2. Take 6 clean canning jars and place on a baking sheet.  Melt some coconut oil and brush inside the jars lightly with oil to coat.

  3. In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat add in oil to melt and get hot. Add in sausage (remove casings) and cook for about 7 minutes breaking apart with a wooden spoon while cooking.  Remove from pan and set in a small bowl.

  4. In the same pan add in mushrooms and bell peppers and cook for about 3 minutes then add in spinach for just 2 minutes then remove from heat.  

  5. In a large bowl whisk eggs and add in water then season with salt, pepper, Italian seasonings and garlic powder. (add some red pepper flakes if you want a little heat).  Add crumbled sausage and vegetables to the egg mixture and combine.

  6. Divide the mixture into the jars (leave about 1 inch to the top).  Keeping the jars on the baking sheet place in the oven and bake for 30-33 minutes or until the eggs are set on the top.  Let them rest for about 5 minutes before serving.
